"Your Apple ID has been disabled" phish

I've never seen one quite like this before, although it's not the first time I've seen Apple-themed scam email (this one, for example).

The phish is hosted at [donotclick]app.apple.com.proiectmaxim.ro/id2/sign_in/login_ID&=/?&=?reactivate=[redacted] and it looks pretty convincing if you haven't spotted the Romanian domain name..

It just goes to show that the bad guys will try to phish anything these days..
